Gift Guide, Couples’ Must-Haves

It takes two to tango — but even the most seasoned dancers can benefit from props and toys. No matter how long you’ve been with your partner, you might be curious about adding props and toys to your sex life. That doesn’t mean you’re dissatisfied. It just means you’re willing to explore!

Introducing a stimulant to a partnered sex session can feel daunting at first. Some partners might take the idea personally, or think that they’re not providing enough pleasure on their own. Others might be worried about how their partner will react — often for that reason. It’s worth remembering that toys enhance but can never replace the person you’re intimate with. After all, a dildo or other accessory can’t listen as you talk about your day, or provide crucial skin-to-skin contact as you cuddle. 

Before you and your partner break in a new toy, take time to chat about what each of you is looking for in the experience. Communicating throughout the session is important, too. You might want to introduce a safe word if the toy is particularly kinky, and you should feel safe to express what feels good and what can feel better.

Ready to add a third to your pairing? Here are some easy to use toys and tools that are meant especially for partner play.
